Classic-Style-Bandana (1)

1. Biker/Classic Style

1. Lay the bandana out flat, fold a single corner into the center.

2. Take the folded corner of the bandana and put it against your head and make a knot with the side corners, leaving the remaining corner hanging over your face.

3. Hold the knot in place with one hand to keep it tight, and tie a final knot by bringing the remaining loose corner under the previous knot (to keep it tight)

2.Pirate Style (The Jack Sparrow)

This style requires two bandanas

1. Fold one bandana horizontally into a headband and tie the ends together.

2. Lay the second bandana over the knot in the headband and tie the knot tails around the second bandana to hold it in place. (This gives the length for a flowing pirate captain look)
